Dreamt a Dream

I Dreamt a Dream
Where the birds chirped along my serenades
Where the morose life was unseen
And beauty never fades

I left a theme
A painting of our romance in likeness of Van Gogh
I smelt a cream
The lusciousness of your skin and all

Were it not for reality
We would live for a thousand years
Were it not for liability
Love would not be a debt with humanly fares

For do not call romance unworthy
It is a Dream undreamt
A twosome fury
More than heaven-sent

We will design our own cloud nine
Let it be tainted
With the devil's wine
But our lives shall not be fated...

Whether or Not

With honesty you tell me
Whether you love me or Not
With clarity you tell me
Whether you want me or Not

I can finally afford to live
'Cause reality is better than my dreams
No debt to give
Or so it seems

I feel an electrifying rush flow through me
The passion of our romance
I write down all the lovey-dovey lines you say to me
Maybe our fable stands a real chance

So with no regrets you tell me
Whether you adore me or Not
These words I'll never forget just tell me
Whether I bore you or Not

Never had I had yearnings of these kind before
And that is before meeting you
Never had I had earnings of these type before
And that is after greeting you

My songs never had hidden meanings
Now they symbolize life and longing
I never went through quixotic dealings
Now to your essence I find a belonging

With all your heart tell me
Whether you love me or Not
Without recalling your past just tell me
Whether you want me or Not

Be it spoken or on paper tell me
Whether you love me or Not
Be it by an gesture please tell me
Whether you want me or Not

In my solitary moments
I think about your happiness
Hope brings about torments
I hope my deeds will never bring you sadness

So with all your fire tell me
Whether you love me or Not
With all your desire tell me
Whether you want me or Not

The truth is
I cannot be without you
Whether you love me too or Not

Only in togetherness there is bliss
I cannot forget about you
Whether you want me to or Not...

Lost for Words

Note; The following ode celebrates the 2K views received by the blog. Thanks to all our dear readers for making this triumph possible. Love to all.

Slippery snake
How I long to hold on to you for a long time
It was an honest mistake
To call you mine

Time won't let me go
Just like the ghost of love
That won't make you grow old
It I forever must serve

What have you done to me?
What masculine prize do you seek?
Not only have you made me fall in love
You've let a poet get Lost for Words

I searched for every verse
Ever dedicated to your beauty
It is a curse
That there aren't more than plenty

I miss every single tear you cried
For him
I kiss every hindered emotion goodbye
And try not to be carried away by sin...

Regret

Our time together has put a dent
On all the love I lent
Who knew you were hell-bent?
What we stood for just got up and went

Those words we shared
That romance we cared
All the cupid's bets we dared
Yet our relationship never fared

All I have is no Regret
For those moments spent
With your lips so heaven-sent
They got my heart spent

Remember the last time
I told you that you were mine
It felt like the first time
When I recalled that line

You say that I am unforgiving
Yet I gave you everything worth giving
And I was not worth living
With you in a reliving

So are you just going to vanish?
Reminding me that all we had was a false wish
That foremost kiss
Our angelic bliss

The past would you forego?
The future we cannot foreshadow
You are my dear and you just can't go
Leaving me desolate and so low

Our love had taken its toll
An affinity nothing but a poll
In which we voted off our soul
To the devil's goal...







Rejoice

Rejoice in my despair
For I have not brought you enough sorrow
Showing me that you still care
If I'd be alive tomorrow

Highlight your love for me in a moonlit shadow
Proving that you still care
If I'd be here tomorrow
Life after death is not fair

Rejoice in my despair
Your hatred never seemed so shallow
Showing me that you'll still be there
When I'm gone tomorrow...

The Cruel Urban Jungle

I open my sleep-ridden eyes
Shielding them from the annoying sunlight
I stretch my arm to the side
To grasp the hand of my wife
Like I did each heavenly morning
But instead I grab nothing
And realize that I had only recently divorced
I turn to my side, my heart leaps into my throat
The alarm clock glares at me
The red numbers, scary and deathly
I'm late!
I jump off the bed and fiery pain greets me
As the table bangs against my knee
Overcome by panic, sensing a blur
I blindly put on my suit
God, it was uncomfortable.
I hurry downstairs to the kitchen table
Shove the food down my throat
My son jabbers away, telling me that after work
I should play football with him but that was the least of my concerns
He tugs roughly at my shoulder to get my attention
And hot, sizzling coffee drops all over me
I scream out in agony
Overcome by rage, I yell at him
And with hurt in his eyes he slumps away
Kids, what good were they for anyways!?
I rush to the front door panting
And feel like I'm forgetting something
I can't understand why?
Until I realize it's my wife would wave me goodbye
From the front door
Now instead of her, dirt and rubbish lie on the porch.
I look into the car's mirror
And gape at it in horror
I could barely recognize my own face
Messy hair, blood-red eyes, skin deathly pale
I notice that I'm wearing different coloured socks
As I step hard on the pedal and hurry to work.

Fired bullets sink deep into my mind
At least that's what it feels like
Cars honk angrily at each other
People talking noisily to one another
Traffic jammed on the road
Refusing to move forward
My head slumps in frustration
Could it get any worse?
A loud thud
As two cars crash into each other
The drivers argue until one of them
Pounces on to the other, total mayhem
He's the one with the luxurious Porsche and he emerges victorious
As people separate them before it can get worse
Police arrive and arrest him
And yet on his face I see a grin
Well, whatever money he was going to be fined
I'm sure he wasn't going to mind.
The traffic jam refuses to subside
So I park the car on the road side
And decide to walk the rest of the way to work.
Scrambling through the forest of people takes sheer effort
Incidentally, I run into a friend of mine
Who waves at me, I wave back with a fake smile
He asks me how is life?
And I reply with lies
More lies, more lies, more lies
Until we bid each other goodbye.
As I continue walking I trip over something
A homeless man's trailing bony leg
Who wears bedraggled clothes on sickly pale skin
I angrily curse at him
And yet he doesn't show a hint of understanding
Staring ahead as if hypnotized by the working men and women that pass above him
He has that look in his eyes
Of someone who has given up on life.
I hear a scream from the road
Blood spilled all over
A cat run over by a car
Her leg torn apart
Meows painfully with short, stuttering yelps
But the people ignore her and don't help
There is still time to save her
Before she's finished off as a truck runs over.
''Dirty animals ruining our city''
Someone says standing beside me
As I dust off my suit
And rush towards work.

I drop my head on the desk, into a deep sea of papers
Bills, more bills, and forgotten reminders
I was late of course
And now fired by my boss.
I replay the moment in my head
How he'd roared at me, his face fiery red.
I gather all my stuff and head for the exit door
Looking back at my fellow employees who happily talk to each other
Only a few minutes ago they had sorry looks on their faces
Telling me that they understood my pain.
I sigh letting out all the frustration and agony
And make my way towards the hell that awaited me.
